Damascus, Syria– At least 25 civilians were killed and 104 others injured in car bomb attacks in the regime-held neighbourhood of Karm al-Louz in Homs city on Wednesday, sources reported. 

Pro-regime media outlets published on Wednesday footages which showed the impact of two car bombings in Karm al-Louz neighbourhood in the city of Homs. The footages showed dead bodies of the victims and destruction caused by the explosion.

Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported that two car bombs exploded in al-Khidiri Street close to a crowded area.

The two car bombs reportedly exploded with a time interval of half an hour between the first and the second explosion, resulting in the death of 25 civilians and the injury of around 104 others, 30 of them seriously injured and were taken to nearby hospitals. 

Omar Suleiman, a local activist based in Homs city, told ARA News: “Karm al-Louz neighbourhood is under the control of the regime forces and most of its inhabitants have been displaced due to the military operations in the neighbourhood.” 

Meanwhile, some local activists considered the probability that members of al-Nusra Front might be behind the operations in Homs, as a response to the regime forces’ attempt to storm into besieged areas in the city. Members of al-Nusra Front (Jabhat al-Nusra) reportedly failed earlier on Monday to carry out an attack against a regime stronghold in Homs, and the car loaded with explosive substances has by mistake exploded nearby opposition fighters’ center, killing and injuring dozens.
